Virtual Tour Preparation:
Getting ready and setting up for your interactive virtual tour is essential. The virtual tour is the first thing many of the home shoppers will see. That is why is it very important to have your home and property ready when the photographer comes. The photographer generally will have limited time at each location since several tours are scheduled daily. Our interactive tours will make your home look amazing online, only if you have the house cleaned and ready. The photographers are not able to stage or clean for you.
Make your yard and patio neat and clean.
Properly arrange outdoor furniture, tables & chairs, and raise umbrella if necessary.
Mow the lawn; make sure the driveway and entryway are free of clutter.
Remove clutter and tidy up the shelves.
Move excess furniture out of rooms. You want the space clean and clutter free
Replace burnt out light bulbs (the photographer will need light in most rooms).
Clean off kitchen counters; remove any clutter.
Make sure dirty/clean dishes are out of the sink and put away.
Remove garbage from kitchen.
Put essential items used daily in a small box that can be stored away.
Close toilet lid and remove the garbage.
Clean mirrors and glass surfaces.
Hang towels neatly from towel bar.
Turn on as many lights as you can when the photographer arrives.
Try not to be in the room being photographed so you don't end up in the photo.
The photographer will not:
Clean or dust
Pick up/move clutter (toys, dirty dishes, dog toys, etc.)
The home MUST be ready for the photographer when he/she arrives. Upon arrival the photographers can wait no more than five minutes for additional home preparations. If a wait longer than this must happen, he/she will have to move on to the next scheduled appointment and the virtual tour will be rescheduled. If this happens, a rescheduling fee of $15.00 will apply.
